Swindell Caps Lucas Oil ASCS Speedweek Championship With Salina Speedway Victory

Bryan Hulbert - SALINA, Kan. (June 16, 2018) The 2018 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek wrapped up on Saturday night with Sammy Swindell grabbing his third win of the week and the Speedweek Championship in the A.G. Rains owned No. 3.
"To be a guy that's almost 63 years old, I'm just blessed to be able to do this and that He gave me the passion, the drive, and the talent to get this done," stated Sammy, who is the third member of the Swindell family to win at the Salina Speedway; joining son, Kevin, and brother, Jeff, on the list of winners at the three-eighths-mile Kansas oval since 2012.

Rolling seventh to first in his Heat Race to be the FSR Radiator High Point Driver for the A-Feature, Swindell capped that off with drawing the pole for the A-Feature.

Taking the lead over Jeff Stasa going into the first two turns, Swindell was trailed early by Skylar Gee. Steadily pulling away, even through cautions, the race for second picked up as Gee slipped to the top of the track through turns three and four on Lap 14. Letting Wayne Johnson race into the runner-up spot, the Outlaw Wings No. 2c fought through a gaggle of slower cars to finally get clean race track between himself and Swindell.

With the No. 3 held up by slower traffic, Johnson closed a straightaway advantage to mere car lengths only to see the caution lights blink on with 26 laps complete for Johnny Herrera who suffered a collapsed top-wing.

Pulling away on the restart, the checkered flag would be delayed as the caution flew just as Swindell rounded the fourth turn on the white flag lap for Sam Hafertepe, Jr. who has rolled to a stop in turn four.

Back to the last completed lap, the green, white, checkered restart saw Swindell run away. Second attempt at the final lap, Sammy slipped off the bottom groove exiting turn-two. With room to breathe, Sammy was able to get the car back underneath him to capture the win by 0.884 seconds.

"We kind of wore the tires down, and the caution let the pressures go down, so when I went in the back bottomed out and then it pushed so I missed that one little spot where the rubber was," explained Sammy. "I knew from our start we pulled a gap. A lot of times if I ran it harder into one, it would stick a lot better, but that time with the pressures too low, it pushed."

Wayne Johnson grabbed second with Skylar Gee posting his best finish of the season in third.
John Carney II held onto fourth with Seth Bergman coming from ninth to round out the top-five. Racing back and forth with Carney and Bergman, the No. 95 of Matt Covington ended up sixth with Blake Hahn seventh from 13th. Jack Dover was eighth with Jeff Stasa in tow. The top-ten rounded out with Harli White coming up from 17th.

Up next for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, the tour will head for the 47th Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino Resort on June 21, 22, and 23. The $15,000 to win, $1,000 to start event is among the highest paying events the tour sees all year and is a crown jewel in Sprint Car racing.

Swindell Triumphs With Lucas Oil ASCS In First Creek County Speedway Visit

Bryan Hulbert - SAPULPA, Okla. (June 14, 2018) It's not often that a there is a track that Sammy Swindell has not raced at, but Thursday night was indeed the case at Creek County Speedway. That, of course, didn't slow the wily veteran down as Sammy picked up his second victory of the season with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com.

"You had to get on the wheel to race this place. We were lucky enough we had a good car that we could run a bunch of different lines, but I was worried there at the end getting on those lapped cars. They were all running together, and it seems like this week I've been on the wrong end, but tonight, I was on the right end.

Caution on Lap 1, the red followed on the restart as Alex Hill went flipping wildly down the front straightaway after contact with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. who had a run on the No. 77x exiting the fourth turn. Alex was unharmed, and the race resumed with Swindell in the runner-up spot to Scott Bogucki.

Bounding to the lead on Lap 2 with a high line pass on the Sawblade.com No. 28 off the fourth turn, Sammy shut down any move on the bottom through turns one and two to begin pulling away down the back straightaway.

Able to continue after the earlier contact from Alex Hill, the No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. worked to second following a Lap 4 restart to begin hunting Sammy Swindell.

Taking the high line to build momentum, Hafertepe and Swindell began trading slide jobs at both ends of the quarter-mile oval. Across and under through several laps, Swindell was able to edge Hafertepe for the lead. Finally getting the advantage on Lap 11, Hafertepe's lead was short-lived. Swapping lines, Sammy was able the force Hafertepe on the brakes as the pair worked to the half-way point.

"I knew I was getting too slow off the bottom when he slid me, so I just had to go to the top and hustle the car," commented Swindell of the race with Hafertepe. "I'm just grateful for all the fans out here and truly blessed to be here. Another new track and I'm undefeated."
Into traffic shortly after, Sammy steadily pulled away.

Bottled up by slower traffic in the final five laps, it was not enough to allow Hafertepe a chance at the lead. Crossing 2.244 seconds to the good, Sammy Swindell was chased to the line by Sam Hafertepe, Jr. Entering the night 15 points ahead of Seth Bergman in the championship chase, Hafertepe left Creek County Speedway with a 35-point advantage over Blake Hahn, who claimed the show positions on the final lap over Scott Bogucki. Crossing in fifth was Roger Crockett.

Oklahoma's Alex Sewell moved from 12th to sixth with Chris Martin posting another strong finish in seventh. Dropping to third in tour standings, Seth Bergman had to dig his way from 14th to eighth. Kyle Bellm in ninth was followed by 15th starting, Travis Rilat, in 10th.

Through five rounds of the 2018 ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek, the final night of competition is Saturday, June 16 at Salina Speedway in Salina, Kan. Racing gets underway at 8:00 P.M. (CT) with admission only $20. Kids 16 and under are free with a paid adult. Get more information online at http://www.racesalinaspeedway.com.

Winner Scott Bogucki (Richard Bales Photo)



Scott Bogucki Breaks Through At The Devil's Bowl With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Bryan Hulbert - MESQUITE, Texas (June 12, 2018) Becoming the fourth Australian to capture a win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, McLaren Vale's Scott Bogucki captured his first career victory on Tuesday night in the Sawblade.com/Dissolvalloy No. 28 at the Devil's Bowl Speedway.

Bogucki is the 142nd driver to win with the National Tour of the American Sprint Car Series, and 10th different winner of the 2018 season. Scott joins Brooke Tatnell, Ian Madsen, and Jamie Veal on the list of Australian winners.

Holding off Sammy Swindell as the pair raced through slower traffic, Bogucki was like a Shark after his prey to keep the BMRS No. 3 at bay. Bobbling just one time through turns three and four just after the race's half-way point, Swindell mounted a charge but was unable to get by the No. 28 for the lead.

With traffic playing to his favor with five laps to go, Bogucki was able to put some breathing room between himself and Swindell. Clearing the slower cars with two circuits remaining, Sammy closed to within 10 car lengths before the drop of the checkered flag.

Asked what the win meant to Scott, the Brodix Rookie of the Year contender replied, "This is unbelievable. I came over six years ago as a crew guy and I worked for Sammy and as far as I'm concerned, he's as good as they come. To beat him, it makes it even sweeter."

Adding to the story, the first track Scott raced at in the United States was the Devil's Bowl Speedway.
"I came here four years ago and ran one night. Honestly, I never figured I'd get my first win on a half-mile, much less here. We've really struggled here a lot in the past, but this year's we've actually been good, just didn't have a lot of luck, but tonight just went our way."

Swindell in second is the 36th time the wily veteran has finished on the podium with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com. His fourth consecutive trip to the podium this season, Swindell was chased to the line by Blake Hahn. Falling to fourth in the early laps, Hahn was able to get back to the show position with two laps to go.
Challenging for the lead at one point with Swindell and Bogucki, a misstep in traffic relegated Sam Hafertepe, Jr. to fourth with Travis Rilat crossing in fifth.

A rebound performance after struggling as of late, Roger Crockett was sixth with Wayne Johnson in tow. Seth Bergman moved up to eighth after starting 10th with Tony Bruce, Jr. ninth. The night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger, Oklahoma's Matt Covington made up the top-ten.

With three rounds of the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek in the books, the series heads for Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla. on Wednesday, June 13. Admission is $20 Seniors with Military and Kids 12-15 admitted for $15. Kids 6-12 are $2. Access to the Pits is $30. The track is located at 3501 SW Sheridan Rd.

Winner Sammy Swindell (Bobby Thomas Photo)

Swindell Kicks At Route 66 With The Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series

Bryan Hulbert - AMARILLO, Texas (June 9, 2018) Fighting through a rain delay that kept track crews busy all night, Route 66 Motor Speedway was lightning fast with Tennessee's Sammy Swindell wrestling the A.G. Rains owned No. 3 to victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com in round-two of the ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek.

"I feel really blessed to be here. There's not too many people my age who get to come out here and do this or be this competitive, so I'm grateful to the Lord for that. Looking forward to a lot more wins and it's great that everyone stayed, they did the best they could with this track and made it pretty fast at the end," stated Swindell who at 62 years old picked up his 16th career win with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com.

Nearly seeing his A-Feature end as it started, the first attempt at green saw Swindell and Colt Treharn make contact going into the first turn; ending the night for Colt with his front axle in two pieces. Able to continue, the contact left Sammy with his hands full the remainder of the 30-lap event as the right rear shock was ripped from the lower arm along with a damaged Jacobs Ladder.

"The incident we had on the start, I didn't know the guy was still there, but we broke the shock and bent the ladder up. The car was good, just a little bit tight, but when I got into traffic it was real tight," commented Swindell. "Even being broke, the car still rolled good."

Keeping any challenge at bay through several restarts, traffic, and dirty air played havoc on Swindell, but it was not enough to allow anyone a chance to advance. Winning by 2.841 seconds, the runner-up position went to Matt Covington who came to the line with Travis Rilat in tow. Rolling from the 12th starting spot, restarts were pivotal for the BDS Motorsports No. 1. Opening his entry into turn one, Rilat would diamond to the bottom and rocket down the backstretch, clearing three and four drivers at a time before finally settling into third, despite several holes in the right sideboard from Colt Treharn's front axle.

Coming from eighth, Blake Hahn crossed fourth with Harli White posting her best finish of the 2018 season in fifth. Ripping through the field from 18th, series point's leader Sam Hafertepe, Jr. was the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger with a run to sixth. Tony Bruce, Jr. in seventh was trailed by Scott Bogucki from 14th. Skylar Gee was ninth with Jamie Ball moving up six spots to tenth.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek heads for the Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas for action on Tuesday, June 12. Track information, ticket prices, and directions can be found at http://www.devilsbowl.com.

Hafertepe Wins A Wild West Texas Shootout To Kick Off The ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek

Bryan Hulbert - LUBBOCK, Texas (June 8, 2018) Holding off the charge of Seth Bergman on the closing lap of Friday's 30 lap A-Feature at West Texas Raceway, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. picked up his second National Tour win of the season to kick off the 2018 Lucas Oil ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek.

"I knew he [Seth] was coming, lapped cars just had us so bottled up. Running the top in clean air was the best place to be and I'll be honest, once we got rolling and got the tire pressure built up, we didn't have our car really where it needed to be; especially in traffic. This track threw us a curveball all night so to sneak out of here with a win is awesome," commented Hafertepe, who despite not feeling the car was at it's best, lapped up to ninth place.

Trading the lead with Travis Rilat through two starts to open things up, the BDS Motorsports No. 1 set the pace with Hafertepe giving chase. Into traffic in a matter of lap, West Texas Raceway offered grooves from top to bottom with Rilat using them all to hold off the Hills Racing Team No. 15h.

Mired in non-stop traffic, the backmarkers went the way of Travis until Lap 18.
Pinched going into the third turn trying to advance past the No. 99, Hafertepe shot the bottom line to take over the lead. Pulling away to a half straightaway advantage as Seth Bergman rolled into the picture, the red flew on Lap 20 for Rilat as the No. 1 went upside-down in the second turn after contact with the outside wall. Travis was okay.

Restarting with a trio of slower cars between the first two positions, Hafertepe used full advantage to pull a nearly 1.5-second advantage before finding traffic again on Lap 23.

Forced to move around the three-eighths-mile oval, Seth Bergman was running his Oil Field Equipment and Manufacturing No. 23 for all it had. On Sam with two laps to go, Seth worked the bottom of the first and second turns with Hafertepe able to use traffic to keep Bergman at bay. Set up for the run on the closing lap, Seth was there again in turns one and two. Still not able to make the pass, Seth railed the top of the third and fourth turns as Sam ran down a slower car.

Barely clearing the slower machine in the middle of turns three and four, it was just in time to hold off Bergman at the line. Entering tied for the point's lead, the win advanced Sam Hafertepe, Jr. back to the top of the standings by eight over Seth Bergman.

Picking up the night's CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night, Sammy Swindell rolled from 11th to third. John Carney II in fourth was followed by eighth starting Jake Bubak to complete the top-five. Scott Bogucki crossed sixth with Pennsylvania's Mark Smith in seventh. Having to drop to the tail after spinning on the opening laps, Johnny Herrera fought back from 22nd to eighth. Harli White and Matt Covington completed the top-ten.

A field of 22 drivers on hand dropped into three Heat Races with wins going to Scott Bogucki, Seth Bergman, and John Carney II. No B-Feature was needed.

The Lucas Oil ASCS Sizzlin' Summer Speedweek continues Saturday, June 9 at Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas with the action getting underway at 7:00 P.M. (CDT). Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for youth 5-10, and free into the grandstand for kids four and under.

Hafertepe Revs Things Up With ASCS Gulf South At RPM Speedway

Bryan Hulbert - CRANDALL, Texas (May 25, 2018) Winning for the 12th time with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. picked up his third ASCS sanctioned win in a row with his score at RPM Speedway on Friday night in the Hills Racing Team No. 15h.

Racing from the seventh starting position, Hafertepe rolled to second with the lead in the hands of Terry Gray. Searching the track, the race's final caution with three laps to go sent Hafertepe to the high line on the No. 10 of Gray to secure the top spot. Working back to the bottom of the Speedway, Hafertepe worked to hit his marks as the high line was wide open for Blake Hahn.

Restarting fourth at the Lap 22 caution, Hahn grabbed the runner-up spot from Terry Gray at the wave of the white flag. Letting the Griffith Truck and Equipment No. 52 sail the cushion through the final two turns, the top two spots were nearly nose to tail at the drop of the checkered flag. Terry Gray ended up third with Channin Tankersley and Ray Allen Kulhanek to complete the top-five.
